If you still need a school for the 2019-2020 school year, please visit a Family Resource Center to enroll.
The window to transfer between NOLA Public Schools is currently closed.* We encourage families wishing to transfer schools to visit our website to complete an application for next year between November 22, 2019 and January 31, 2020.
*Families experiencing a hardship at their current school can request a Hardship Transfer. This process begins by asking your current school for the Hardship Transfer Request Form; the school will provide it for you and submit all required documents to NOLA Public Schools. For more information about Hardship Transfers, please visit your school or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW TO REGISTER
These documents are required to register at your new school:
- Birth certificate
- Immunization records
- Parent or Guardian photo identification
- Proof of residency (utility bill, rental lease agreement / mortgage, property tax notice, etc.) Please note that more than one proof of residency may be required.
- IEP / 504 plan (if applicable)
Current and timely proof of residency in Orleans Parish is required. Inability to provide requested proof of residency may result in the loss of your child’s placement.*
In order to enroll in a school for the 19-20 school year, please visit a Family Resource Center.
*If residency documents are not in your name, please bring two (2) of the above proofs in the name of the lessee, a copy of the lessee’s photo ID, and a signed letter from the lessee affirming that you and the child(ren) reside in the household. If your child is matched to a “Type II” charter school, you may reside in any Louisiana Parish and must submit proof of residency for the Parish in which you reside. If you are unsure if your child’s school assignment is a “Type II,” contact your school for registration details and instructions. The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act is a federal law that ensures immediate enrollment and educational stability for homeless children and youth. McKinney-Vento provides federal funding to states for the purpose of supporting district programs that serve homeless students. If you believe your student may be eligible for assistance under the McKinney-Vento Act, please call (877) 343-4773, or visit a Family Resource Center.
